1. 3,3-Diphenylpropylamines of the general formula ##STR00053## wherein: R.sup.1 is hydrogen and R.sup.2 is C.sub.1-C.sub.6 alkylcarbonyl; or R.sup.1 is
C.sub.1-C.sub.6 alkylcarbonyl and R.sup.2 is hydrogen; their salts with physiologically acceptable acids, their free bases and, when the 3,3-Diphenylpropylamines are in the form of optical isomers, the racemic mixture and the individual enantiomers.
2. The 3,3-Diphenylpropylamine of claim 1 wherein R.sup.1 is hydrogen and R.sup.2 is C.sub.1-C.sub.6 alkylcarbonyl.
3. The 3,3-Diphenylpropylamine of claim 1 wherein R.sup.1 is C.sub.1-C.sub.6 alkylcarbonyl and R.sup.2 is hydrogen.
4. A method of treating urinary incontinence in a patient in need thereof, the method comprising administering to the patient an effective amount of a 3,3-Diphenylpropylamine of the general formula ##STR00054## wherein: R.sup.1 is hydrogen and R.sup.2 is C.sub.1-C.sub.6 alkylcarbonyl; or R.sup.1 is C.sub.1-C.sub.6 alkylcarbonyl and R.sup.2 is hydrogen; or its salt with a physiologically acceptable acid, its free base or, when the 3,3-Diphenylpropylamine is in the form of optical isomers, the racemic mixture and the individual enantiomers.
5. The method of claim 4 wherein R.sup.1 is hydrogen and R.sup.2 is C.sub.1-C.sub.6 alkylcarbonyl.
6. The method of claim 4 wherein R.sup.1 is C.sub.1-C.sub.6 alkylcarbonyl and R.sup.2 is hydrogen.
7. The method according to any one of claims 4-6, wherein the 3,3-Diphenylpropylamine is administered to the patient in the form of a pharmaceutical composition comprising a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.
8. A pharmaceutical composition comprising an effective amount of a 3,3-Diphenylpropylamine according to any one of claims 1-3 and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.
